I seem to be getting a lot of "Not Responding" errors where my computer stalls or hangs for a 30 seconds to a minute then resumes working. These errors seem to happen on Microsoft products (Word, Outlook, Excel). But that may just be that those are the programs I use all the time.

Any advice would be appreciated.

"Windows repair"?

(In Office Professional Plus 2010, it's
"Start -> Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Microsoft Office 2010 Professional -> select "Change" -> select "Repair" -> click "Continue" -> go get a cup of your beverage-of-choice; the whole thing takes about five minutes.)

I usually have five or six memory-hog Windows programs open and running constantly. Every few days, they get really crash-y and uncooperative.

If rebooting doesn't work, Windows repair usually does.

Good luck.

The logical place to look for this would be 08 01 50 Operation and Maintenance of Windows. ;)
